🐾 Maybe the reason I love animals so much, is because the only time they have broken my heart is when theirs has stopped beating.

How do you do your bit?

(Sorry I couldn't find a worse animal abuse pic, couldn't face looking at them! And this chappie looks sort of proud about his lack of feathers!)

I never watch programmes on TV when it's about the suffering of animals, like for example whale hunting or poaching of our wild animals, nor do I read environmental magazines going on about the state the planet is in or articles about animal suffering at the hands of humans, but I came upon an article titled, "I bought her to kill her, so she didn't get a name", and although I knew I was heading for trouble, the title enticed me to click on it and read it - it's about the suffering of one chicken, but also a pointer to the mass suffering of our planet's animals.

My whole heart and soul cringed, even as it is just thinking about it and writing this article, and my body immediately went hot and then cold, leaving me feeling sick in the pit of my stomach.

The thing is, when you take the problems of the world on your shoulders, your body doesn’t feel good. It’s just that simple. The emotion you feel is always about the vibrational variance between where you want to be and where you are. If you're out of balance, there are only two ways to bring yourself into alignment: Either raise your expectation to match your desire—or lower your desire to match your expectation. This discomfort that I felt was nothing more than my own awareness of resistance (if you understand the concept of resistance, it means that, the more you resist something, the more of it you'll get) - and by giving my attention to it, I was joining in the mass consciousness of promoting more of the same.

The more you push against something, the more of the same you are creating. The more you discuss the "current world-wide economic crisis", the larger that truth becomes for you and the masses. Green Peace, with all their activism against whale hunting, are causing more of the same. Sure, they get some results by getting whale hunting banned in some countries (it's a drop in the ocean of resistance), but that still does not stop any illegal activities, and they've got their job cut out for them, ad infinitum. They dream, eat, sleep and live their cause, ensuring a never-ending supply of the same. If they, instead, turned their attention to a feeling of well-being for the whales, and everybody on earth joined in, what a wonderful whale abuse-free world we would have!

How do you feel when you watch the Green Peace programmes or come upon a site about animal cruelty in the chicken industry or the article I mentioned above? Do you also immediately feel ill and carry a feeling of dis-ease around with you for days? Why do you think you feel like that? Is it because you think you're supposed to do something about it?

How do you ever get the truth to be more the way you want it to be? To get the world to stop abusing animals? You’ve just got to start beating the drums of truth the way you want it to be—and when you do, you will immediately feel good. And there are those who might say, “Oh, you’re not facing the facts.” And I say, we should never face any fact that was taking us to a place we don’t want to be.

There are those who believe that the world is getting more and more desperate. I am here to tell you that the world is getting better and better, and better, and that every experience you have causes you to launch rockets of desires, and Source comes in response to those rockets. And the best thing about our birth and death is that the resistant ones die and the allowing ones are born. And with this combination of contrast that keeps us launching new and new desires, it’s no wonder that the Universe is expanding in this marvelous way and that life is getting better, in every day—and in this moment—for everyone who insists on focusing there.

Leave the problems of the world to the individual problem-makers of the world, and all you can do is be the joy-seeker that you are!



  1. Hiya

    Came across your blog whilst doing another search and am really enjoying it. This entry gave me pause for thought and I've read it a few times. I am involved in animal care and rescue on a part time basis and agree to some extent with what you are saying. However, people are very good at closing their eyes to "bad" things and in a great deal of cases, it is only when you show them what is going on that something gets done. Thinking positively and beaming goodwill out there is not going to give practical help to a single being (human or otherwise). Is this what you are saying or have I completely got the wrong end of the stick?

  2. Hi Sam, nice to meet you and thanks for visiting my blog.

    It's not about closing your eyes to "bad" things nor is it about thinking positively and "beaming goodwill" out there - it's about not pushing against the unwanted. This is a Universe that is based on attraction. In your very effort to rid yourself of this unwanted thing, you achieve vibrational harmony with it -- and it comes more fully into your experience.

    So, you say, "Well, how can I separate what they're doing? It feels like what they're doing has something to do with my life. It feels really connected to me. How can you say that it is not connected?" And I say, it is only connected because you are making it connected.

  3. Hi Maree

    Apologies for the delay in responding ... I have just caught up on the rest of your posts - completely agree with your posts re the spiders and our irrational fear of something so small.

    Love the painting of the wild hunting dogs - they are so beautiful!

    Hope you are having a good autumn - my hedgehog has just come out of hibernation, which has thrilled me no end. I just hope she finds a mate this year, bless her.

  4. Hi Sam, we are having a very unusual WET Autumn - it hasn't stopped raining since December! I'm glad your hedgie is surfacing at last - do other hedgehogs come and visit? Mine were totally fenced, so there was no chance of that!
